'Mexican Dogs' by Cold War Kids on 'Gossip Girl' Tonight
It's not every day that my love for serialized teen dramas intersects with my sworn duty to cover our local music scene, but a wonderful thing occurred during tonight's Gossip Girl on The CW: Blair's fateful late-episode meeting regarding her Yale application was scored by "Mexican Dogs," a song from the latest Cold War Kids release, Loyalty to Loyalty. The show always does well its musical cues, and that song really added some extra emotional punch (honestly!) to the climactic scene, as well as hooking up CWK with one of those "Music heard on tonight's Gossip Girl..." plugs at the end of the episode, complete with a shot of the album cover. Good for you, guys, but Chuck's uncle is still a real dick.
